Re: Panasonic Double Cashback

Hmmm - the 50-200 plus TC looks very tempting.

Re: Train window photography

Re: Sony RX100

I had one for a short while. Good IQ, but handling was atrocious. I think an LX100 would make a better option (if you can get one that focuses properly at longer distances). Either that or a...

Re: Friend or foe for olympus?

It all depends on what you want from your photography. If you are into detailed landscape or architecture and want to print large, then more Mp is a good thing. Of course up-scaling is an option,...

Re: Friend or foe for olympus?

It's demonstrably not the case that more Mp means more noise. Pick any manufacturer and you'll find that increasing Mp has gone hand-in-hand with reducing noise. The digital photography industry is...

Re: European Leader of the Year

I seem to recall that there were extensive studies on the Severn Tidal Power project. There were serious downsides in many ways, including to marine life, wetlands, and much more. There was a big...

Re: Climate Change - can you belive this?

Ha, ha - I'd vote for that. Trexit anyone?

Re: Rumours that Sony has made a 32MP MFT sensor

Your point about Fovean is a good one Huw. I had a DP1m for a short time and the output at low ISO was stunning. Mono conversions in particular were breathtaking:

Re: Climate Change - can you belive this?

The whole US administration is rotten to the core. Corrupt, arrogant, ignorant, vindictive, racist, money-grabbing. They lack any vision for humanity or the citizens of their own country. All that...

Re: A brief walk down a country lane...........

Very nice close-up shots Mark. I'd be tempted to crop off the flower head on the left of the first though to leave the main bloom as the sole subject.

Re: Rumours that Sony has made a 32MP MFT sensor

Whilst it's true that as its size reduces each pixel captures less light, it's not true to say that s/n ratios at the sensor level have worsened as Mp counts have increased. In fact, the opposite is...

Re: Rumours that Sony has made a 32MP MFT sensor

Well, it definitely has to be true that a point will be reached when more pixels is too many, but I don't think we've got there yet. The problem is that as tech evolves, there's always the...

If you want free, then either Darktable or Rawtherapee are the way to go.

I suggest we stop this here. We'll only end up reinforcing our prejudices and falling out again.

Re: Babs's

Probably the wise thing to do, but having re-read the thread, I'm still at a loss to understand Dave's response. However, re-reading his farewell post, I must say, it's pretty offensive. Not sure I'd...

Re: Rumours that Sony has made a 32MP MFT sensor

The history of digital photography has shown that increasing pixel count is usually accompanied by lower overall noise, not the inverse. More Mp also gives greater scope for cropping as well as...

It's all rather strange. I don't get why Dave thought behaving like that was necessary or a good idea. Burning bridges is never a good social strategy, even if you were provoked - but I'm really...

That would be consistent with support for 8k in the Sharp m43 video camera.

Lovely tonality and the sky is amazing - but I'd lose that ugly concrete thing in the foreground ! :)
